MF DOOM Operation Doomsday (Deluxe Edition) Please note: tracklisting is detailing the Deluxe 2 CD edition. Against seeming insurmountable odds, the album - bootlegged mercilessly, floating in and out of print on various labels since its release in 1999 gained mythical status amongst music aficionados of all backgrounds as one of the landmark releases of the past decade. At its core, one man, a microphone, an MPC 2000 and a Roland VS 1680. By the time of Operation Doomsday’s recording, DOOM was a transformed man: a veteran of hip hop’s aging “new school” reinvented as the masked, abstract wordsmith of the NOW. His pointed wit, subtly subversive lyrics and stream-of-conscious flow over adventurous sample-based production created the yard stick by which rappers in the coming decade would measure themselves. Now Doom’s own Metal Face Records will release Operation Doomsday as a special remastered and expanded two-disc set, featuring a 32-page lyric book and a complete collection of alternate versions, B-sides and instrumental. San Francisco-based artist Jason Jagel, who provided the painting for DOOM’s “MM...Food”, was enlisted to create both an updated version of the album’s iconic comic-book style cover art especially for this release. The entire set was produced under the watchful eyes of Doom himself. Expanded and deluxe, this is the complete Operation Doomsday experience Metal Face CD
MF DOOM / Bishup Nehru Nehruviandoom (Redux) The VILLAIN was laying low on the fog shrouded Tin Islands when Bishop’s X-Wing crashed into his swamp. It was April 2013, and that’s a metaphor for Bishop’s first meeting with DOOM before a show at the 100 Club. The future collaborators were booked to play in the tiny ancient jazz venue with Ghostface Killah that night. A month earlier Bishop had been co-signed on stage at SXSW by Nas. There was mad anticipation for his next project. Stakes were high. At the 100 Club, VILLAIN saw what Nas had seen, a real MC. In the months that followed Metal Fingers sent Bishop Yousendit links to folders of beats and Bishop laid down bars. The two worked remotely and then followed up with sessions in the studio.Amongst many swell reviews the mini-album caught a lot of criticism. Not least because it was so short, just 32 minutes. To mark the 5th anniversary, we’ve reduced the running time to 27 minutes. LEX RECORDS 12"

MF DOOM Operation Doomsday (Remastered) Foil embossed sleeve double LP reissue of MF Doom's debut album! Originally released by Daniel Dumile in 1999, Operation Doomsday has had something of a chequered history (landing on various imprints, bootlegged, ripped off), its many re-pressings a testament to the album’s undiminished appeal over the years. It remains a bold statement of intent, coming after the end of Dumile’s previous group, KMD. Doomsday set the blueprint for the masked MC’s following work: pairing the lo-fi charm of his funk samples with a dense, lyrically dexterous, stream of conscious flow. This remaster has been given the embellishment this classic demands, featuring a double LP in a foil-embossed silver sleeve. Metalface LP Pre-Order
MF DOOM Operation: Doomsday [7" boxset] The classic debut album from the hip-hop legend MF Doom get's a special vinyl reissue, spread across seven 7"s. You know the drill with collectible Doom box sets, when they're gone, they're gone! FEATURES: - Seven black vinyl 7”s - Custom black leatherette outer box with silver-foil rendered images of DOOM’s famed mask and logo - Two never-before-commercially available silver-colored DOOM 45 adapters - Each 7” has a custom sleeve designed by legendary graf artist Lord Scotch (Blake Lethem), who drew the original Operation: Doomsday cover. Musically raw and at-times off-kilter, former Fondle ‘Em singles like the aforementioned tunes plus “Gas Drawls,” “Hey!” and “Go With The Flow” were joined by a whole slew of new tunes. It all sounded familiar but new at the same time. It shouldn’t be overlooked that in addition to the dusty, wobbling music, the former Zev Love X completely changed up his vocal style on the tracks that would land on Doomsday, chopping his flow up and bringing a whole new approach to his formerly liquid, and often humorous lyricism.
